Sara Connor Found Guilty


Sara Connor Found Guilty

Australian woman Sara Connor has been sentenced to four years jail over the death of a Bali police officer on Kuta Beach.

She was found guilty of fatal assault in company, with Chief Judge Made Pasek rejecting Connor's claim that all she did was separate her British boyfriend David Taylor and Wayan Sudarsa on the night of the deadly fight.

Connor, he found, had jumped on Mr Sudarsa's shoulders, effectively pinning him down.

The 46-year-old mother of two stood quietly as Monday's sentence was handed down.

The jail term - which will include the seven months Connor has already served - is half of the eight-year sentence that prosecutors had demanded just weeks ago.

Connor said she would consult with her lawyers as to whether she will appeal the sentence.

Indonesian prisoners are also eligible for repeated cuts to their sentence if on good behaviour.

It comes after her British boyfriend David Taylor was sentenced to six years for fatal assault in company.

He has indicated he will not appeal the sentence, with his father John Taylor saying they are "content" with the outcome.
